what savannah sparrow pics are supposed to look like

After the somewhat depressing pics I posted the other day of a smashed Savannah, while wading through a weedy brushy field today, had good numbers of them pop up, this one was fairly cooperative:

There were decent numbers of other birds present as well.  Pipits worked the edges of the area, a few bright palm warblers popped up but wouldn't quite pose long enough for a decent shot.  I flushed a couple snipe, but I didn't run into any big ticket items (i.e. clay colored or rare ammodramids). White-crowned sparrows are coming through right now in peak numbers.  They seem more willing to hold a pose than most songbirds:
